Your real estate experience is important!

With exceptional professionalism, San Diego Native Kristi Olson helps buyers and sellers carry out smooth real estate transactions throughout the San Diego area.

With a gift for listening and really understanding client needs, Kristi expertly brings the knowledge and energy to create your real estate experience that helps you achieve your goals. All done with honesty, integrity, privacy, and confidentiality.

Going the distance to market listings to attract more buyers, a quick market time, and the desire for a top-dollar sales price is a maximum priority.

Being a certified and talented Stager, all of her listings receive a complimentary Staging Consultation, which assists in charming and enticing buyers, reducing market time, and - along with smart negotiating - increasing purchase price.

Kristi feels that being a successful agent means being an outstanding human being. Balance, integrity, excellent mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health are essential to success and she works on all of these areas of life as a daily habit.

With more than 14 years of experience in resale real estate and 2 years in New Home Sales, extra designations she has procured: eco green certified, short sale certified, certified Stager, designated Realtor®, and more. Her entrepreneurial leadership and outstanding sales volume earned her the Prudential Top Producer's Leading Edge and Honor Society awards.

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Peter has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry from the University of Victoria. In 2000, Pete headed to Los Angeles to further his professional career after receiving a job offer from UBS Warburg, a Swiss-based investment bank, where he worked as an analyst for two and a half years. Banking was an invaluable experience and provided him with a very strong background in finance and analytics. In 2003, Pete decided to pursue a more balanced lifestyle when he moved to Mammoth Lakes, CA.

This is where he started his real estate career in 2003 as a full-time Realtor. Two years later he met his wife, DeDe, a San Diego native. In July 2005, Pete and DeDe got married in Mammoth Lakes and they now have a beautiful little girl, Grace, and an energetic son, Sawyer! Pete and DeDe relocated to San Diego in 2014 to enjoy all that San Diego has to offer. Pete has been working full-time as a licensed Realtor in California since 2003, therefore he brings plenty of transaction experience and knowledge when serving his clients. Pete is very proud to say that in October of 2014, he became an American Citizen.

The foundation to Pete’s real estate business is providing the absolute highest level of customer service and dedication. He balances providing in-depth knowledge and analysis with being patient and empathetic at the same time. Pete’s approach to guiding his clients through the real estate buying/selling process is valued by his clients, as illustrated in his testimonials and reviews. A significant portion of Pete’s business that he has developed over the years has come from client referrals – the ultimate testimonial! Pete understands the value and benefits that he offers his clients through his dynamic and hard-working real estate team – Swanson & Associates. From start to finish, and beyond, Pete is there for his clients 100%.

Born at George Air Force Base, my family moved to San Diego when I was about six months old as my dad retired from the United States Air Force to start his career as a commercial airline pilot for the beloved PSA and then US Airways. My family enjoyed the rural lifestyle and I grew up with horses and enjoying the outdoors. I started playing tennis competitively at the age of 10 and I competed on the Southern California Circuit until College. Growing up, my mom owned and ran her own Montessori School in Ramona that she sold, but is still open today! I have always had a love for teaching and early childhood education so my career started off working in Montessori Schools.

In 2003, I moved to Mammoth to pursue another passion, rock climbing, and to help my sister with her business and their newborn son. Quickly after moving to Mammoth, I met my husband Pete – we were married in Mammoth and started our family there as well. In 2005, I founded and ran Mammoth Montessori Children’s House which I operated full-time for about 10 years. It was a great experience to run my own successful business which was an integral part of our community and to follow in my mom’s footsteps. In 2014, my husband and I and our two kids moved to San Diego when my dad was diagnosed with cancer.

My family and I love San Diego – we enjoy boating, hiking, and being tourists in our own town! Our kids, Grace 16, and Sawyer 13 are active in school, and the community– our son plays baseball with a local club team. Our schedule is kept busy with our kids but we love it. I still find time to volunteer with Make-A-Wish, St. Jude, and Poway Soroptimist. My husband, Pete, has been working in real estate full-time for 20 years and we make a great team – trust, integrity, hard work, and results – Our goal is to leverage our great teamwork and knowledge to help our clients buy and sell real estate in San Diego.
